“Caged Bird Songs,” the posthumous album that Maya Angelou recorded in the years leading up to her death, was released earlier this month, and the-late artist previously shared her hopes that the album would bring people closer to God.

The iconic poet, who died on May 28, spent the last seven years of her life working on the unique project along with producers Shawn Rivera of “Az Yet” and RoccStarr, who has worked with the likes of Jennifer Lopez and Jennifer Hudson.

“Caged Bird Songs” features 13 tracks that blend some of the-late author’s famous poems and commentary on social issues with modern hip-hop beats. Angelou previously shared that her faith inspired the unique project, according to a press release.

“I know that we would not have come together had it not been for the truth, that I’m a child of God. And whatever we do it will be wonderful, successful [and] it will achieve more than the three of us can imagine or either one of us could ever hope for,” Angelou previously said in an AOL interview.
